I'm trying to install the Mutt binary package available from
www.netbsd.org for NetBSD 1.4.2/pmax, and am having to install a long
line of dependencies first (e.g. Perl [Perl ... for a mail client
???], OpenSSL, Ncurses, Libtool, etc., etc.). I have finally hit a
brick wall, as having installed all the dependencies, I'm now getting
[mybox packages]# pkg_info
perl-5.6.1nb5 Practical Extraction and Report Language
openssl-0.9.6nb2 Secure Socket Layer and cryptographic library
[mybox packages]# ls -l mutt*
-rw-rw---- 1 root wheel 1060160 Oct 10 18:20 mutt-1.2i.tgz
[mybox packages]# pkg_add -n mutt*
Requested space: 4240640 bytes, free space: 154375168 bytes in
Depends pre-scan: `ncurses>=4.2' required.
Depends pre-scan: `openssl>=0.9.5a' required.
pkg_add: pkg `openssl>=0.9.5a' required, but `openssl-0.9.6nb2' found
pkg_add: Please resolve this conflict!
pkg_add: 1 package addition(s) failed
I put OpenSSL 0.9.6nb2 in because it seemed advisable (IIRC there are
tiny security holes in OpenSSL < 0.9.6a), rather than the 0.9.5a being
asked for. I can't see the problem being simply because 0.9.6 >
0.9.5, because Mutt also demanded Ncurses >= 4.2, and I've put Ncurses
5.2 in without Mutt complaining.
Can anyone advise me how to proceed ?
